Pete's Point of View

Last week I covered a farm retirement auction in north-central Iowa where a nice 2008 JD 8430 MFWD tractor with 1476 hours sold for $170,000. How does that compare to what other 8430's have been selling for? See for yourself:

  • $149,000: 2009, 2296 hrs, 4/3/14 northeast IN
  • $154,000: 2009, 2000 hrs, 3/15/14, west-central MI
  • $148,00
